Fletcher continues to struggle at the plate this season. Coming into the game, the Halos' leadoff man was slashing a mere .224/.255/.245 on the year, and his performance tonight did nothing to improve those numbers. For those fantasy managers that are starting Fletcher on a regular basis, it may be time to reconsider for other options until he finds his stride at the plate. Fletcher will look to rebound when the Halos take on the Royals on Wednesday afternoon.

Fletcher is off to a slow start this season, slashing .238/.273/.238.

Fletcher remains a solid backup play, especially with his SS/2B eligibility in ESPN leagues and his 2B/3B/SS/LF eligibility in Yahoo leagues. Fletcher will look to bounce back from a hitless night against the Astros on Tuesday.
